Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger announced infamously in the summer that the Gunners managed to make a striker transfer and then presented South Korean Chu-Young Park as being a great forward with huge potential.
Months have gone past, and even though everybody did expect the Korean to have a hard time adapting to the Premiership he is yet to have a line-up in a Premiership match, and we’re almost in January.
He played a few games with the team in the cups and even managed to score for the Gunners, but despite this he is still a substitute at best when it comes to Premiership games.
The question if Arsenal transferred the wrong Korean or not comes after Celtic’s midfielder Ki Sung-yueng managed to win the Best Footballer of the Year award in South Korea at only 22 years old.
Being a midfielder, the young star managed to score 6 goals already in the Scottish league in 24 appearances for Celtic. Now, why didn’t Wenger hustle to sign him having already seen the 2010-2011 season when he played almost every match for the Scots?
